It’s that time of year that the sweet sixteen of collegiate competition sends excitement and fervent rallying into sheer overdrive. Trumpeters are mellifluously and deafeningly tooting signature anthems throughout electric-filled arenas, fans apply their co-ordinated color face paint; whilst uniting as the unlikely sixth man, as their battle cry of support grows stronger with each progressive round on the victory road to the anticipated final in America’s heartland – hoosier country: Indianapolis, Indiana (April 6)

Welcome to NCAA March Madness. Sixteen deserved hoops outfits seek to stake claim of attaining the honorific Naismith trophy; named in honor of Canadian Dr. James Naismith who founded the now universal sport in New England – Springfield, Massachussets.

The MVP of the NCAA final receives the dignified The Wooden Trophy; named in memory of the late-great UCLA Bruins head coach, John Wooden, who coached then future NBA Hall Of Famers: Bill Walton and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Kemba Walker, Joakim Noah, Anthony Davis, Deron Williams and Carmelo Anthony are a feast of names of the current NBA athletes who mightily flourished under the eagle-eye scrutiny in the NCAA March Madness; which later saw them become household names in the world’s most famous basketball entity – the NBA. The NBA’s next generations are now on national display, as the suspense builds throughout the basketball galaxy. The cream of Sweet Sixteen whittles down as the hardwood action aims to crown the kings of the college court.
